I am a new user and this is my first post here on the directory.
I am looking at the S&W Airlite 44 Mag for protection. I don't plan on going to shoots with it.. Just carrying when Fishing, Hiking, etc..
This thing is light, I mean really light. To me almost to light. I have read some reviews and they seem to me to be mixed 50/50. I am sure they beat the hell out of you but since I am not going to be shooting competition with it that doesn't bother me. I can just load down when shooting paper.
I have read where after 100 rounds they fall apart, screws come loose, cylinder release came loose etc..
Does someone who has one or someone who has spent some time shooting with the Airlite have some good or bad info they can share.
These are really pricey and I don't want to drop that kind of cash without a little more information.
Appreciate any opinions you can give me!
